Ten Ways Online Education Matches, or Surpasses, Face-to-Face Learning - 3 views

  • Academics have recognized for years the shortcomings of the faculty-centered classroom, but it has been difficult to break away from the paradigm. Whether the classroom instructor uses lecture, discussions, role playing, small group activities, or any other technique, it is still the instructor running the show. In an online environment, however, the instructor soon takes a back seat. Students are empowered to learn on their own and even to teach one another. Particularly in the discussion group mode, students have the opportunity to explain, share, comment upon, critique, and develop course materials among themselves in a manner rarely seen in the F2F classroom.
  • On average, online courses are far more writing-intensive than traditional classes have ever been.
  • instructor posts a question on the asynchronous discussion board, every student in the class is expected to respond, respond intelligently, and respond several times

Pawns in the For-Profit Machine - Government - The Chronicle of Higher Education - 0 views

  • Three times during the past decade, the Pittsburgh campus of Kaplan Career Institute was named "school of the year" by Kaplan Higher Education, a for-profit higher-education company with more than 70 campuses nationwide. The award recognized the college for its rapid growth and high graduation and job-placement rates.
  • But some former faculty members say the honor came at a steep price: To keep those numbers high, administrators would pressure employees to falsify attendance records, raise grades, and manipulate job-placement numbers. If a professor refused to change a student's grade, the professor's supervisor would do it, the faculty members say.

  • Pursuing a bachelor’s degree online is great for students who need to attend classes on their own time, who are working or who are older students with some of their bachelor’s degree already completed, or for students who are simply uninterested in more traditional campus life.

Educational technologists defend online education | Inside Higher Ed - 5 views

  • A panel of academic technologists ganged up on a straw-man version of the online education skeptic here at the annual Educause conference here on Thursday.
  • Does online education take more time? And does it enable cheating?
  • “Just as you can lie with statistics, you can mislead with questions,

  • We may be confounding the time it takes to do something with the time it takes to learn to do something,” Otte said. The first time instructors teach online, they tend to overcompensate for their ignorance by over-investing their time in the virtual classroom. But that does not mean they will not adjust and adapt — just as most instructors did to the circumstance and demands of classroom teaching when they began their careers.
  • “The bottom line is, we are not dealing with anything new online in terms of cheating,” Long said. “This is a problem that exists across modes of delivery.”
  •  
    There is certainly a widespread perception both among teaching staff and learning technologists that online instruction is a "time-suck for professors" and I'm not convinced that this entirely because of the need to adjust to the new medium. Anyone know of any research into this issue?
